"Research is an exciting way to learn. It involves delving deeper into a subject than traditional textbook learning. For me, I find research so fascinating because it is something that you canít find on Google. The answer requires hours of studying, testing, and analyzing results."

Dylan Goto, B.S. Chemistry, Biology 2015

Research Opportunities

Beyond the CURAS-sponsored research opportunities listed under the Students section of our website, we strive to maintain an updated list of external opportunities available to students. This should give students a sense for the wide range of opportunities available to get involved in research as an undergraduate, though the list is far from comprehensive. Students are encouraged to actively seek out opportunities that suit their own interests and goals.
